Congrats on Garret tribute
Sir -- I just want to congratulate Liam Collins for his very clear and insightful tribute to Garret FitzGerald.
What impressed me most was Mr Collins's story about how during a general election Dr FitzGerald inadvertently left his armed escort behind on a trip to Donegal.
An ugly situation involving H-Block protesters was just avoided when he arrived at his destination. It then emerged that his armed detectives had been left behind. The media had a very good story in hand.
